I have been compiling information, documentation and game dynamics for quite awhile. I am in the process of sorting through it and attempting to segregate the meaningful from the trivial. My intent is to publish several volumes. I have contacted a few publishers and have gotten back some very basic guidance on how to proceed. Mind you, this will be my first attempt at such a large undertaking. While I have done a fair share of technical writing, editing and prooofing, most of that has been done with a stubby pencil. Now with the aid of computers, internet and digital resources, I think I can manage to make this endeavor a reality. It has been suggested by one publisher, that it be in digital format, so it can be edited from time to time and maintained current. So that is quite likely how it will be, intially developed as a blog, with the final coming out as a Published Digital Reference or E Book. A lot of this is new to me, but very interesting.
My first volume will be geared toward the bulk of our hunting community and focused on the Road System. What I envision have thus far, is a volume formatted much akin to that of the Milepost and the Highway Angler. Each highway detailed mile by mile, with adjustments to seasonal eg Spring and Fall and species opportunities eg Big Game, Small Game, Upland Game and Predators. Trailheads, pullouts, viewpoints and game migration routes will be identified by milepost as well as GPS Co-ordinates, in the event the actual milepost is unable to be easily ascertained.
My second volume will focus on the existing Trail Systems connected to the Road System. Trailheads, points of interest, vantage points and will specify Winter, Summer or Year-round Use.
My third volume will focus on the more prominent fly-out destinations, complete with Air Taxi points of contact and strip/lake conditions and locations for the private pilots.
My fourth volume will focus on Trophy Hunts, exclusively. Probably the most demanding of the series, which is why it will be the last.
